Catchy wins 2017 Blue Diamond Stakes Group 1 $1.5Million at Caulfield (VIC) 2yo, 1200m.
Lindsay Park-trained filly Catchy remains unbeaten after four starts and put up an excellent performance in taking out this Group One race.

Kawi wins 2017 Haunui Farm Classic Group 1 NZ$200,000 at Otaki (NZ), 1600m.
Two of New Zealand's stars fought out a great dual here with Kawi just pulling clear late to score his sixth Group One victory. From barrier two, rider Jason Waddell was content to let Kawi settle midfield, against the fence, down the back straight and past the 1200m. Locked away and third last at the 700m, Kawi eased out a width then wider a few strides later to camp in behind the pace. Kawi was presented with a lovely gap at the top of the straight and cruised up to challenge. He took his time but gradually he got well into his work and ranged alongside Start Wondering and these two settled down for a great dual, Kawi pulling clear in the last strides to win well.
Winx wins 2017 Tab Chipping Norton Stakes Group 1 $600,000 at Randwick (NSW) 3yo+, 1600m.
Winx showed she is a true champion in taking her winning streak to 15 with another wonderful performance despite the Heavy9 track. Hugh Bowman settled her nicely in seventh place, one off the rails, before improving well nearing the home turn. She cruised to the front at 200m and then went on to win easily although appearing not to be appreciating the heavy conditions.
Sheidel wins 2017 Oakleigh Plate Group 1 $500,000 at Caulfield (VIC), 1100m.
Sheidel showed very good pace from her good barrier (3) and soon went to the front. She then travelled really well in the lead, was challenged at the home turn, fought off that bid to draw to a clear lead at the 100m and then went on to score a very smart win, in good time.
Farson wins 2017 Autumn Classic Group 2 $200,000 at Caulfield (VIC) 3yo, 1800m.
His first start at stakes level saw Farson score his fourth win (three on end) from just six starts with an easy victory here. From barrier nine, Farson had to do a lot of work early to sit one out of the leader passing the 1600m and remained there past the 800m until he joined the leader at the 600m. Straightening for the run home, rider Stephen Baster punched the gelding clear inside the 300m, was still clear at the 150m and had them all well covered to the line - an easy win.
One More Honey wins 2017 Vale Edgar Britt Sweet Embrace Group 2 $200,000 at Randwick (NSW) 2yoFillies, 1200m.
The John Thomson-trained filly One More Honey relished the Heavy8 conditions in scoring a surprise win at $21 but it was a good effort nevertheless. She settled in third place on the rails from her inside barrier (1), got along the inner at the 300m, challenged at the 100m and finished too well to score a good win.
Savanna Amour wins 2017 Angus Armanasco Stakes Group 2 $200,000 at Caulfield (VIC) 3yoFillies, 1400m.
Savanna Amour , off a third placing in the Kevin Hayes Stakes (Gr 3, 1200m) two weeks ago, sat third, one out and one back early from barrier four. Her position remained the same down the side and past the 600m then jockey Joao Moreira pushed her forward to be closer turning in. Moreira got busy inside the 200m and they took a narrow lead at the 50m and he lifted her over the line in the last couple of strides.
Diamond Tathagata wins 2017 Schweppes Skyline Stakes Group 2 $200,000 at Randwick (NSW) 2yoColts & Geldings, 1200m.
The Mark Newnham-trained Diamond Tathagata looks a promising colt, following his second to She Will Reign (Manhattan Rain) in the Inglis Nursery (RL, 1000m) on 17 December with a Group Two victory here. He was smartly away but was caught deep, sharing the lead but was under riding on straightening. He was second at the 200m but lifted gamely in the closing stages to grab a narrow but impressive win, handling the Heavy8 conditions well.
Stratum Star wins 2017 Peter Young Stakes Group 2 $200,000 at Caulfield (VIC), 1800m.
Stratum Star was smartly away and after racing outside the leader (Mourinho) early on, he then eased to get a good trip in fourth place, one out and one back. He moved up well on turning for home, hit the front at the 100m and then fought back gamely for a very good win.

The half-sister to last year's winner (Gold Rush), Gold Fever took her record to three wins from five starts with a well timed finish and her maiden stakes win. Rider Opie Bosson settled her midfield from barrier seven where they remained one out to the 600m. Near the home turn she moved further out and once into the straight looked to challenge the leaders. Past the 300m there were six across the track but Gold Fever took over soon after and although challenged all the way to the line, forced her nose in front in the last couple of rides to win narrowly but determinedly by a head.
